TOPEKA — Representative Marshall Christmann appointed J. Basil Dannebohm as chief of staff for the 113th District. Dannebohm will serve as Christmann’s top aide.
“I am excited to have Basil join my staff,” said Christmann. “His drive and accomplishments are evident throughout the region. His intuitive talent and unflappable determination are a sight to see. No matter what the enterprise or endeavor, he just seems to have the Midas touch, and I know he will bring that same level of enthusiasm and success to my staff.”
“From the moment I met Representative Christmann I could see that he genuinely cares for his constituents,” said Dannebohm. “He’s not afraid to stand up for the best interests of his district rather than those of special interest groups – he puts the 113th first. I’m honored to receive this appointment.”

Christmann continued, “We are truly blessed to have Mr. Dannebohm return to Kansas. He has demonstrated a genuine love for our state in the many projects he has facilitated from the moment he returned home. I am honored that he accepted, as he was my first choice.”
In the summer of 2012 he was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson’s disease. In April of 2013, Dannebohm worked with Representative Ronald Ryckman, Sr. on proclamation HR6021 declaring April as “Parkinson’s Awareness Month.”
Representative Christmann concluded by saying “With Dannebohm’s work on HR6021 it is clear he has already been a proactive force in the Capitol for quite some time. I am confident that his transition will be seamless.”
Dannebohm will work in the 113th District as well as alongside Representative Christmann at the State House.
